Your Rights After an Automobile Accident

Wendy M. Schiller-Nichols: has over $2,000,000 in settlements in 2008 alone!

If you have been in an automobile accident in Michigan, you have valuable rights and benefits. These rights and benefits are available whether you were the driver or passenger of a motor vehicle or a pedestrian hit by a motor vehicle. It is critical, as a victim in an automobile accident, that you understand these rights and benefits. Under the Michigan No-Fault statute, your insurance company is responsible to pay certain personal protection insurance benefits, commonly referred to as no-fault benefits. As an automobile accident victim, you also have the right to pursue a tort liability claim against the at-fault driver to recover damages that are not compensated by your insurance company (i.e. pain and suffering, disfigurement, scarring). If you are awarded damages (money) through a trial or your case is settled, it is the at-fault driver’s insurance company that pays you the money damages.
